A Hanover man wanted on rape charges in York County was arrested on Thursday in Wisconsin, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

Emmanuel Lugo-Fernandez, 31, is facing one felony count each of rape by forcible compulsion, sexual assault and aggravated indecent assault without consent and a misdemeanor count of indecent assault without consent, according to online court records.  

In January 2019, the Hanover Police Department investigated the alleged rape of a 16-year-old girl.  As a result of their investigation, they obtained an arrest warrant charging Lugo-Fernandez, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service.
